Nobody is perfect, and when you are booking a $100 per night hotel in San Diego you get what you pay for.
The service isn't sterling, but it's not outwardly rude either. The Keepers are simply functional in their job duties so if you keep your expectations level you won't be dissapointed.
The room was probably a bit below average. I'd measure it at about 10X15 and was very average in it's appointments. The bed was large and fairly comfortable, there was no microwave or coffee maker, but they did give me an iron and board for my entire 5 day stay. Basically the room was cramped but not uncomfortable.
The location has it's ups and downs as well. Planes land less than a mile away and the train runs about 100 yards in the other direction. Pacific Blvd is never quiet and the neighborhood isn't upscale. That said - I never felt as though my sleep was interrupted or that I was in a particularly seedy part of town.
The bottom line here is that if you book this place you have no business expecting top tier appointments and service. It's a $100 motel in San Diego. I enjoyed my stay knowing that the extra C-note per night was spent on enjoying my time in one of America's best cities.
